Holidays on the Mighty Murray

I was very lucky to be invited onto a Houseboat for lunch one day while on holidays on Mildura.
My friend and her family had 5 days just lazing on a houseboat.
It was peaceful, and a fantastic experience to "have a turn"

This is the life!

Officially on HOLIDAYS!

It hasn't quite registered yet. . .
This was last weekend's market I had with my sister.
She came all the way from Mildura, and we had Plants, Craft and Olive Oil
Did I mention, that I'm now on . . . holidays!

. . . almost there

I just have to get through one more day
"I THINK I can I THINK I can . . ."
but I'm looking forward to seeing that little blue engine "puff" right over the hill.

The Challenge is ON!

This is the car that I learnt to drive in . . .
It has lost it's way on the farm over the years, but now has a second chance at lifeAlign Center
Little Pete, has 6 or so years, to bring old "Betsy" back to humming stage
I think it could need more than "food"
The challenge has begun

Some quilting done, and now for the binding.
Look what happened, when I checked it out the next day . . .
There must have been a scrap on the sewing table (what am I talking about must have been!!)
On advice from a sewing friend, I just cut it close and pulled the threads through, rather than unpicking and re-quilting.
